Are you struggling with diabetes or insulin resistance? The good news is you can manage and even reverse these conditions without giving up your favorite carbs. This guide will show you how to enjoy sugar, pasta, and bread while putting type 2 diabetes and insulin resistance into subjection.

Hello, angels! Welcome to the Glucose Goddess Show. I’m Jessie Inchauspé, a French biochemist here to educate you about your body. Today, we’ll tackle insulin resistance, pre-diabetes, and type 2 diabetes. We’ll debunk myths and provide easy, pain-free tips to reverse these conditions.

Understanding the Diabetes Epidemic

Type 2 diabetes is a global epidemic. According to the International Diabetes Federation, 537 million adults worldwide have type 2 diabetes, and another 541 million have pre-diabetes. This means 1 billion people are affected, largely due to insulin resistance linked to our food environment.

The Nature of Type 2 Diabetes

Contrary to common belief, type 2 diabetes is not genetic. It’s a consequence of diet and lifestyle. The rise in cases among children, when it used to be an adult-onset disease, highlights this. Identical twins often don’t share the condition, proving it’s not purely genetic. Numerous studies show that dietary changes can put type 2 diabetes into remission.

What is Insulin Resistance?

Insulin resistance is a spectrum. It can be measured at any moment, and it indicates how your body processes insulin. If you are insulin resistant, you’re somewhere on the spectrum from healthy to pre-diabetic to type 2 diabetic. Insulin resistance can improve or worsen based on your lifestyle.

The Role of Glucose and Insulin

Glucose is your body’s primary energy source, derived from carbohydrates (starches and sugars). When you consume carbs, they break down into glucose, causing your blood glucose levels to rise. This spike triggers insulin release from your pancreas to manage glucose levels. However, consistent high glucose intake leads to insulin resistance. Your body needs more insulin to manage the same amount of glucose, creating a vicious cycle.

The Importance of Flattening Glucose Curves

Insulin resistance leads to higher fasting glucose levels, which your doctor measures to diagnose pre-diabetes or diabetes. Elevated glucose levels can cause inflammation, cell damage, and severe complications over time.

4 Practical Strategies to Lower Insulin Levels

To reduce insulin resistance, focus on your carb intake. Shift from a high-carb diet to one with balanced proteins, fats, and fibers. Here are four simple hacks to help you:

• Savory Breakfast – Start your day with proteins and fats instead of sugars and starches. For example, choose soft-boiled eggs over toast and jam.
• Add Vinegar – Incorporate vinegar into one meal daily. It can help regulate blood sugar levels.
• Veggie Starters – Begin your lunch or dinner with a vegetable starter to slow down glucose absorption.
• 10-Minute Walk – After one meal each day, take a 10-minute walk to help manage glucose levels.

These tips are easy to integrate into your daily routine and allow you to enjoy carbs with less impact on your glucose levels.

The Science Behind Diabetes Reversal

A 2021 review emphasized that the best way to reverse type 2 diabetes is by avoiding glucose spikes. Low and very low-carbohydrate diets have shown significant success in putting diabetes into remission. The American Diabetes Association now endorses diets that minimize glucose spikes.

Community Success Stories

Thousands have successfully used these hacks to manage and reverse their diabetes. For example, one person reduced their HbA1c from 9.6 to 4.7 and lost 25 kilos by following these methods. Another saw improved energy and reduced insulin needs.

Taking Action

Diabetes is not a life sentence. By changing how you eat, you can take control of your health. Download the free resources provided in this episode to get started. Remember, you have the power to make a difference in your health.

Advocacy for Better Food Regulation

Our food environment contributes to the diabetes epidemic. We need better regulation to prevent food companies from promoting unhealthy, carb-heavy products, especially to children. Education and advocacy are crucial to creating a healthier future.

In Summary

You have the power to reverse type 2 diabetes and insulin resistance with simple dietary changes. Enjoy the foods you love while managing your health effectively. Join the community of thousands who have found success with these easy hacks and take control of your health today. Yes, type 2 diabetes is reversible.
